places on election day in the hardest hit communities that remain without power. good morning. i'm willie geist. this is "way too early." the good news trickling out slowly today. amtrak will begin offering limited service between new york city and boston. new jersey transit will start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system making advances, little by little. the m-train, which links queens to manhattan, just started run. there are still no trains running from low 34th street where half of manhattan remains this morning in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways are now waiting, as you can see in these pictures, in long lines for city buses. for those who drive into the new york city area, the lines stretched for miles yesterday. enough to make you turn around and stay home. in an effort to ease gridlock in the city, the mayor has ordered all vehicles entering manhattan must have at least three passengers. that stands for the rest of the week. there are check points set up on the way into the city with cars not meeting the three-person rule bei

will live to see election day. i'm very happy about that, so you're right, i like hearing how close we are, but the other thing is this. status quo. the jobs report is -- i think the technical term is meh, not good, not bad, it's holding the line and it's the same kind of economy that the president has had for much of the last two years, which is unsatisfactory but not terrifying, so he is going with that, and when you hear an incumbent use terms like the most jobs created in eight months or unusual metrics like that he's looking for a way to reinforce his argument that's been there all along which as you said was if the republicans would have been in charge this would have been worse. this isn't great but it's better than it would have been if john mccain would have been elected in 2008. that is not exactly arousing call to supporters, and it also leaves the door open for mitt romney. and what you heard which is to say, this guy didn't deliver what he said he would, it's time to give somebody else the ball. megyn: when a difference from four years ago. i mean at this point in the election
